Throwback Thursday: Baked Ziti Party

We’re having the extended family over this weekend for a party – my son’s getting confirmed – and I am making a bunch of freezable casseroles to time bake while we’re at mass. My goal for parties is to cook as much as possible ahead of time, so I don’t spend the whole party working in the kitchen.

My make ahead meal plan:

Add in a veggie tray, a cheese tray, a selection of chips and dips, a variety of tasty beverages, and a cake for dessert. Party’s ready!

Last night was Baked Ziti night; it’s cooked and stashed in my freezer, ready to go for Saturday. One down, three to go.
